We are Looking For Volunteers!

We have launched our annual Volunteer Drive across all our sites and are actively looking for volunteers to join the food rescue revolution. Food Rescuers are the bedrock of our operations and as you all know, the more we volunteers we have, the more neighbors we can feed. So if you have friends, family, colleagues, etc., who may be interested in joining us please get in touch with your local site director. We can end this problem together!
